CVCC currently offers an Associate Degree in Nursing program. Students participate in classroom, laboratory, and clinical experience typically Monday through Friday. The ADN program consists of five semesters. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the national licensure exam (NCLEX) for RNs. (The NC Board of Nursing will review the criminal background checks of each person applying for licensure. Applicants can be denied licensure based on this review.) Applicants may take the general education/related coursework for the ADN program prior to acceptance. Please note that taking these courses does not shorten the program length, but it does lighten one’s course load each semester after acceptance into the program.
College tuition is set by the North Carolina State Legislature and is subject to change. ADN students are required to purchase a variety of books, class uniforms, malpractice insurance, accident insurance, and other fees as set by the College. The approximate cost for the program is $6,500.00. (This figure is based upon current in-state tuition rates and reflects an approximate cost only.)
Coursework requires that a student have a reliable computer with Word, PowerPoint, and Excel with internet access. Upon application to CVCC, students are assigned a CVCC email address. It is the responsibility of the student to open this email account and read it frequently as the College provides crucial program information through this email account.
Your CVCC email account is the primary method of communication between the College and you. Please check your CVCC email regularly. You will be notified of your accepted or non-accepted status via CVCC email.
